Pregnancy

I'm 15weeks pregnant with my 4th child but struggling to break the news to family & friends.
I'm 25 and already have a 10, 3 & 11month old
Iv never had this problem before but this pregnancy was unplanned & now I'm feeling quite nervous over the reaction I may get which is stopping me enjoying this pregnancy.
Has anyone else been in a similar situation? Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Aaww sad i'm not in exactly the same boat but this. is my second and i really don't want to tell anyone. A few people know as in super close family. I was too scared to tell my Dad so got my Mother to do it and good thing too cause he went absolutely apeshit. (i lost my marbles after having my first)

I am seriously considering not telling people and waiting for them to notice my bump. And when they bring it up just change the subject asap.

It's kind of sad really because it's stress i don't really need. People treat me like a fucking idiot since i was ill. Like anything i do i have to justify it to board of patronising twats. I get the eyebrow 'hmmm is that wise? In your condition?'

Just wait for people to notice i reckon. You don't have to announce it to everyone. Just let them work it out then don't deny it!

Hi
Sorry no advice as such.

im on no.4 (I'm nearly 27) to be honest i only told the closest to me mum etc. As I got horrid comments when I was expecting no.3.

Try not to worry about peoples reactions/thoughts.

Relax, enjoy your pregnancy and congratulations!

Hopefully someone will be along with some better advice

Hopefully someone will be along with some better advice than me!

But seriously don't worry what people think, long as your happy that's what matters x

The only people iv managed to tell is my partner & midwife.
This should be 1 of the happiest times of my life but with having a 11 month old I can't help but feel ashamed & embraced about what people may think even tho deep down I'm really happy about it.
My OH is so excited about it & wants to tell everyone which just makes me feel worse.

I have a 14 month gap between my first two. Its really not as bad as you think.
please try not to feel ashamedsad easier said than done.
I know exactly how your feeling as I've felt the same before. Can you talk it through with your oh about your worries?.

Who cares what other people think? At least you won't be retirement age like most of us will when they leave home, there are upsides to having your children younger too, you get to be a more active grandparent as well if any of yours have dc. It's your life and you are the one that has to love it, if people are unsupportive just ignore them.
